Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur get approval to build new stadium after high court ruling

Tottenham can now begin work on their new stadium plans after winning a High Court battle against a company located next to White Hart Lane.

Archway Sheet Metal Works, in Paxton Road, Tottenham, north London, took action after being given a compulsory purchase order from the club as they look to redevelop White Hart Lane in a £400m project.

However, a High Court judge today ruled that the order will stand, giving Tottenham a green light for their plans.

The only way this would change is if the company win an appeal.

The club have been planning to build a new 56,000 seater stadium on the current site where White Hart Lane is situated, and are hoping it can be ready for the start of the 2018/19 season.

Spurs drew 1-1 with Italian outfit Fiorentina in the Europa League as they fight on three different fronts this season. As well as Europa League action, they are also in the final of the League Cup and of course are hoping for Champions League qualification in the Premier League.
